Israeli forces shot and injured a Palestinian man, on Wednesday morning, at Zatara military roadblock, south of Nablus city, in the northern West Bank, according to medical sources.

The Palestinian Red Crescent Society (PRCS) medics confirmed that Israeli soldiers, stationed at the Zatara military roadblock, opened fire at a vehicle, shooting and moderately injuring a Palestinian man.

PRCS medics stated that its crews were denied access to the bleeding man, delaying the necessary medical treatment.

According to the Hebrew website 0404, one Israeli soldier and one police officer were lightly wounded in the incident.

The Jerusalem Press identified the victim as Muhammad Jaber Khudair Al-Betawi, from Beita town, south of Nablus.
